Published Reviews

    "Now in its seventh edition, the text book seems as close as could be to a completely comprehensive overview of common and uncommon medical problems and their dental relevance. Its shelf-bowing heaviness is estament to its detail, but that doesn’t make it a heavy read." Reviewed by Bex Stockton on behalf of BDJ Student, February 2015
